Jared Morris's insight:

Pokémon Composer Leaves Game Freak to Pursue Personal Ventures | Video Games | Scoop.it
The composer for Pokemon X and Y and the man who created the music in Pokemon games since HeartGold and SoulSilver, Shota Kageyama, has announced that he will be leaving Game Freak.
Jared Morris's insight:

A video game can have really fun gameplay and inovative multiplayer, and be really sucessful. For a game to be truely memberable it must have a memberable soundtrack, one in which, when you hear you think of all the fun times you had playing in that game. It is unfortunete to see such a talented composer leave Game Freak but things change, lets just hope the music remains at the same quality it has always been.

Need for Speed Rivals on Xbox One hears everything you say, and does terrible things to you in response.
Jared Morris's insight:

With the Xbox One getting such a rough start for this new console generation, It's failing to make up any ground. The new Xbox has been plagued by the all seeing government spy know as the kinect and with storys of people getting banned due to what they say in their own house, no one wants to risk buying this console. The kinect was a gimmck in the first place but one that consumers could opt out of, and now that it is getting forced upon us, we would rather just swtich platforms.
